think down the road if hillary decides to run president obama will be the sort of peace maker who talks to the vice president. i love joe biden. i think he has done a great job. i think he may be the best vice president in my lifetime. you can't stand in the way of history, and history is poised for the first woman president if hillary clinton chooses to go down that road. i think the president will be a key factor in looking to make that happen, just like bill clinton was a key factor in helping the president in 2012 and hillary herself after she lost in the primaries as a key factor in getting senator obama elected president in 2008. >> she has done such a job by everyone's account as swuf state. yet, she today acknowledged benghazi was a major regret. the threat assessment process didn't work according to the independent review board, and there are probably regrets about the middle east, about the direction that the administration, not healthing hillary rodham clinton, but the administration, the president took initially with prime minister netanyahu which really did poison the

need a strong standard-bearer once president obama step downs four years from now, and president obama's popularity is now the highest it has been since the first few months he was in office. today's poll numbers are a reflection of the president's inauguration speech when he spoke boldly of progressive values in the country. i'm joined tonight by joy reid, managing editor of the grio. i mean, if she were to run, if she were to announce, wouldn't there be just this groundswell enthusiasm because we know she is so qualified? >> well, i think partly because of her clear and obvious qualifications, but also, hillary-land has a pent-up desire for this woman that has never gone away there was tremendous resentment between obama and hillary camps in 2008 partly because her supporters are so passionate about the idea that she should be our first woman president. it was very hard for them to walk away from that. there was a big push to get her on the ticket, to be vice president. they were disappointed that didn't happen. she then takes the job of secretary of state and really acquitted

individually. 91% support background checks. 82% more for mental health. all the way down to 60% who favor a ban on assault weapons. how crucial will the obama administration's event, like the one we're going to see today, be to getting something passed legislatively. this whole big pr push they have going on? >> one thing that struck me when we heard senator feinstein read that litany of places that have seen terrible shooting rampages is that one thing that is different this time is that there is at least a big debate going on about it in washington that has engaged the president. it's been a decade since that has happened in response tho to these shooting incidents and tragedies. so that's different. what isn't different is that as we heard senator schumer and others acknowledge, a very hard road to go to get actual legislation passed here. now i think more likely that we would see something like universal background checks or this gun trafficking measure that's going to be introduced by senator gillibrand and others, senator kirk in the next few days. hard to see senator feinstein's bill

network? >> that's right. president obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier

remarkable event. a joint sit down interview on 60 minutes this sunday with president obama. as secretary clinton transitions from public life to private life, anything she does will be studied for blues to her future and a potential presidential run. a joint appearance with the president can only add to the speculation. ed rendell is former goff of pennsylvania and msnbc analyst and marjorie margot lis is a professor at the university of pennsylvania. she's also -- her son, by the way, mark, is married to chelsea clinton. i don't know which one of you knows more about the clintons. i'm going to take a guess and go to marjorie. professor, don't laugh. i'm trying to figure this out. i thought secretary clinton was a smash hit this week and she was lucky -- >> she was magnificent. >> the jackals made her look even better. they may have gotten her passions up once or twice but didn't hurt her a bit. my sense is this, what do you make of the relationship between the president personified or pictured by the fact that i have never heard of a president of the united states sharing time on "60 mi

we go down the road to socialism. president obama and his socialist policies must be stopped. >> so the gop's slamming the president hard. they were supposed to be the gop fix-it party on the economy. your father was ridiculed by the far right for saying he could work along with the president. now that the economy's coming back from wall street and even signs on main street and areas that have been deprived, have the gop ruined their chance of coming back here? >> this is a very big deal for republicans. let's say, let's look four years ahead and say the economy continues to improve. the american people are honestly going to see the democrats and say we trust them on the economy and that we have some numbers to show for it. so the republicans have become very vulnerable of losing on the economy. what are the bread and butter issues of the republican party? that's limited freedom and the free market system. and those are two things, their key messaging that they are really losing control of which is so important to -- which is the reason they need to get back as quickly as possible.

severely impacted by gun violence? >> well, that's right, and i think that this is part of what obama hinted at during the inaugural address when he basically said he was going to get down to business and he was going to take the case to the people and use pressure from the outside to break the obstructionism from the inside. i think this is the first sign that the administration means business on that. i also think it's very, very important that we not start out at sea with a big fish and come back to shore with a skeleton and that the pressure has got to be kept on with respect to assault weapons and large-scale magazines. the public supports, as you know, background checks on a scale of 90% but when it comes to large magazines or clip it's about 70% and 60% when it comes to assault weapons. i think at the end of the day it will be the big test of the new obama paradigm, which is to go outside the beltway, build pressure out the beltway, and make the republican obstructionists pay a severe political price for obstructing what is a strong american voter public sentiment in favor of d
